I am part of about 300 hundred Instant Pot Facebook group (ok, I’m exaggerating a little bit) and I see posts a few times a day asking about how to use Instant Pot or talking about the actual time of cooking in an electric pressure cooker or complaining about the steam that they didn’t expect. I was the same. I expected a miracle product and at first was disappointed by what I got. It took time for me to like my Instant Pot and even more time to love using it. I hope this article will help people considering buying an Instant Pot. Here you will find 7 Things You Need To Know About Instant Pot and why you might even not want to buy it.

I took a little break from blogging. I wish it was a break to relax and recharge, but life happened and I just physically had no time and, on occasion, no energy to sit down in front of my computer and write a post. Life is funny. Sometimes there are days, weeks even, when everything is the same and slow and comforting and hours drag like thick molasses. And then suddenly there are swirls of activities, events, deadlines that hit you over the head and rush over thick and steaming like boiling and foaming milk. You blink and a month has gone.

Healthy Chicken Stew is delicious and easy to make. It has only 5 ingredients and is loaded with vegetables. Made on the stove top or in Instant Pot, it’s a perfect meal to serve over rice, quinoa, or noodles.
If I have a bit extra time then I prefer my Healthy Chicken Stew to be made on the stove top. The chicken and vegetables cook in a little bit of water and their own juices for a long time until everything is melting and juicy. Instant Pot version of this recipe is faster and a bit easier since you don’t have to watch the pan and make sure that there’s enough water. However, because the water doesn’t evaporate in the pressure cooker and the vegetables and the chicken also have a lot of liquid, the resulting stew comes out a bit soupy. To counteract the soupiness (it’s a word, right?), I shred the chicken. The flavour of this Healthy Chicken Stew is the same whether it’s made on the stove top or Instant Pot but the texture is a little bit different.
